I found this packages in Trisquel, BLAG and Parabola GNU/Linux. I haven't checked other free distros.

I think this drivers are useful only when using a VMware Virtualisation Software Product. To the best of my knowledge none of those products is free software.

Looks like vmmouse works with other emulation software too [1].
QEMU seems to provide a VMWare virtual video device [2]. AFAIK, all of QEMU is free software.
